Things to plan for when having an event at the Farm
Please call us to set up a date for a site visit. Evenings are best. We will walk around the property and answer any questions.
Weather….. Be prepared for rain, cold, heat or bugs… it is out of our control. Our motto is keep it simple and enjoy the day with family and friends. Wear comfortable shoes and clothes!!!
It is an outside event bring bug repellent for you and your guests.
Are you going to have your service/ceremony at the farm or not? Depending on the schedule for the weekend, we will do our very best to accommodate your needs as far as having a rehearsal here.
We do not have a portable microphone for the ceremony.
When will you decorate? Sometimes we will have 2 events in one weekend. The barn and property are very beautiful as is. You don't need to add too much. Perhaps a crew of friends and family can help either the day of the wedding or the day before, depending on how many events we are hosting that weekend. We normally do not put the linens on the table until the morning of the wedding. Your crew can put your table decorations on after that!
Flowers? Your florist might want to come out to the farm before the day of the wedding! Just call to make an appointment.
Music for event. Will you have a DJ or band?
Bar tenders/bar service? Please have your bar tenders pick up the bar area before they leave at the end of the night.
Food! Have caterers come out to site at least week in advance to plan set up, serving arrangement and clean up. Caterers should be responsible for serving, dishware, silverware, and set-up removal and clean-up of all food and equipment. Caterers must remove and clean their dishware and equip. and package up remaining food. We do not have a dishwasher and space for washing lots of dishware.
Coffee and tea? We have one large coffee maker for you to use, but you need to provide the coffee, condiments, cups and someone to brew it and serve it!
Beer and wine glasses? Plastic or glass? It is a good idea to have bar tenders for the beer and wine for the whole evening.
Ice. We have some freezer space, but have someone bring lots of ice.
We have no internet access in the barn or WIFI.
